An original and complete USN / AN 6510 Seat Parachute Assembly. The main chute assembly appears to be the AN 6510 designated type/design which was basically the same issue to the USAAF, USMC & USN during WWII – I have also seen the nomenclature S1 for the harness assembly and S2 for the 24 ft seat chute. White / cream straps with center dark seam (circa WWII) & with the correct metal fittings and snaps – all functional. Red rip cord metal pull intact. AN stamp in circle stamp on chute pack. Pack is numbered both sides. Other terms also used QAS – Quick Attach Seat & QFA Quick Fit Assembly. Parachute manufactured by SWITLIK PARACHUTE Co Trenton NJ. Back Rest / Pad and Seat Cushion / Pad both in place. The parachute canopy is fully packed and appears not been removed for a long time. The packing/record slip is missing but I was told this seat parachute came from NAS Whitby and was used for aircrew / pilot training immediate post 1945. The chute assembly was kept in a parachute bag for many years and is very clean overall. Overall one of the best looking seat parachutes I have seen for some time.
